Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.v4.0.Utilities (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.v4.0.Utilities.dll)

public Names Names { get; }

Property Value

Type: Names
A Names collection that represents all the names in the workbook (including all worksheet-specific names).

The following code example uses the Names property to create three Name objects that refer to different ranges on worksheet Sheet1. The example then iterates through every Name in the workbook and displays the names in column A of worksheet Sheet1.

This example is for a document-level customization.

private void DisplayWorkbookNames()
{
    this.Names.Add("Name1", Globals.Sheet1.Range["B1", "B5"], true);
    this.Names.Add("Name2", Globals.Sheet1.Range["C1", "C5"], true);
    this.Names.Add("Name3", Globals.Sheet1.Range["D1", "D5"], true);

    for (int i = 1; i <= this.Names.Count; i++)
    {
        Globals.Sheet1.Range["A" + i.ToString()].Value2 =
            this.Names.Item(i);
    }
}
